Stolen

Quoted

on October 10, 2013

I just received one of the most thoughtful gifts from another writer — the charming bracelet pictured above. I never expect a gift — a signed book that I’ve endorsed is generally appreciated and always holds a special place on my shelf — but over the years I’ve received many little thank yous — chocolates (yum!), flowers (sweet!), notecards, wine, and more. And while I have certainly appreciated each and every one, this bracelet, and accompanying note, had that added personal touch that had me showing it to everyone today. Inside is a quote from my book STOLEN: “You make… Read More


It’s Me Again …

on June 6, 2013

Yeah, me again. I meant to get a guest blogger, but was so wrapped up in my revisions that I forgot :/ So … this is going to be a fun day! I’m sharing information about book buying habits. I’m going to give away ONE autographed copy of STOLEN to a lucky commenter. I’ll post the winner here over the weekend, so make sure you check back.

School’s Out

on June 4, 2013

My kids have only been out of school for three days and already I’ve heard the two youngest sing–often–the popular song called, “I’m bored.” If they were growing up in the 70s and 80s like me, they’d be out every day until the street lamps came on. I had three good friends who all lived only blocks from me (and my best friend was two doors down); I had a bike I rode everywhere; and I had a summer pass to the movie theater where every Saturday we could see a dollar matinee of Disney movies. I spent hundreds of… Read More

Brain Freeze

on May 28, 2013

The three day weekend threw me off, and I didn’t get the reminder out this weekend for our Murder He Writes guest we set up … 2 months ago. Bad me. Also, I’ve spent all weekend working on revisions for COLD SNAP, writing upcoming guest blogs and articles for the release of STOLEN next week, and enjoying an overcast and damp Memorial Day by going to a high school baseball game (our school won the D-VI championship! Yeah!) But here’s the links to our previous guests, and we’re booked up through July with some great guys 🙂 … and read… Read More


I Love Readers

on May 9, 2013

I don’t want to go into details, but there have been some Readers Behaving Badly — readers so upset about an author’s story choices that they have resorted to threats. I’m flummoxed about this because, while I understand how readers might get mad at a book and never read that author again, that they would threaten an author and say horrific things on-line is beyond me. We’ve heard of stalkers (both physical and on-line) and general threats to all celebrities, and some of them authors, but to me, this situation goes even further, as if the characters and story is… Read More


Where in the World is Lucy Kincaid?

on April 11, 2013

My husband has a theory. If you put a picture of the cat on anything, you increase traffic. Want more people to “like” your page? Post a cat. If you want a million views on YouTube? Record your cat. The above cat is Nemo, enjoying last Tuesday morning’s wind and sun on our back porch. Technically, Nemo is my daughter’s cat, but he’s really mine, because even when she moves out of the house, he’s staying with me. I have a thing for orange and white cats. Nemo is very popular on my Facebook page. I post a picture of… Read More


Creative Stretching

on October 25, 2012

Five days until STALKED is finally out! It should be available wherever books are sold. I’m excited because every book feels like a gift. Like kids. Hard work, painful at times, but hugely rewarding. I’m currently writing a Lucy Kincaid novella, “Reckless,” which will be out in March. And I’m waiting for my editorial notes for the revisions of STOLEN, my 20th book. It’s also the first book that is mostly in the hero’s head. It’s Sean Rogan’s story, where his past affects his present and he has to make some very difficult choices. For me, writing the hero’s POV… Read More
